Doyle morphs into Green

Jim Doyle has a problem. He's turning into Mark Green.

His plan to speed up the Zoo Interchange reconstruction is as solid as most of the budget plans Green has rolled out: Doyle doesn't have any idea how to pay for his, either.

And how dumb, ill-informed, and/or insensitive can Doyle be? He announced his grand scheme while standing in a park-and-ride lot that is served by a freeway flyer line the Milwaukee County Transit System has recommended be discontinued because of a lack of funding.

He also said he has no clue how much he will propose for transit funding. Whatever it is, it could have been $28 million more had Doyle been just a little less eager to solidify his support among the road builders.
